About Me

I have adopted 4 children from a specific orphanage in Eastern Europe and I want to see more children redeemed from that orphanage and brought into families. I want to make sure that the children who are still left behind in that place are never forgotten.

Julianne Pictures from Sunday

We had a boil water advisery until Sunday night from a water line break.  That meant that I didn't give Julianne a bath Saturday night.  Julianne likes to drink the water from the faucet and will drink bath water or eat the bubbles if she gets half a chance.  I didn't want to risk her consuming any of the water so I didn't put her in the tub and just washed her off good.  The problem is that her hair had been in braids and she took them down, so her hair was crimped looking.

I decided to put her hair up in twist on each side Sunday morning.  She looked adorable and she knew it!

Isn't she beautiful????  She even wore her brown glasses since
she was wearing brown clothes and shoes.

When bedtime came we took down the twists.  That left her with some beautiful "curly" hair.  I really wanted a picture (ok well maybe more than "a" picture).  Julianne was feeling especially ornery too.


Can you see the orneriness? 

When she sees the pictures where her tongue is sticking out, she laughs and shows me she can do it again!

She thinks this one is especially funny! 

Honestly though, she has such a big personality! 

I can't wait to see the personalities of her "Chromosomally Enhanced" siblings come out and develop after they get home.  :)

But with big beautiful eyes like these, who can resist her antics? 

Not me! 

My pretty girl can steal my heart every time.  Those giggles after she is ornery just make it all the more fun!  All in all she doesn't do anything bad, just a little ornery.  haha  She does have a bad habit right now of liking to "rip" things, but it is getting better.  Thankfully, she really doesn't have any other bad habit, just lots of giggles!


  1. I just love these pictures! Very beautiful! God bless you and your family:)

  2. Thank you ladies! I am so blessed! I get to live with that little fireball every day. :) She really is the cutest thing on earth. :) I'm so glad that God chose me to be her "Mama" and has blessed me so many times with His wonderful children that He lets be mine too.
